Hello! I am S. Paul Aaron (the "S" stands for Stephen), and I have been a licensed attorney in South Carolina since 1983. I live in the upstate with my wife and family, and have spent the past 30 years fighting for the rights of my clients in Family Court and criminal court.
I graduated from Clemson University in 1976, and went to work in the textile industry in North Carolina with my father. Working closely with my father taught me the importance of loyalty and perseverance, for he worked in textiles all his life. On my weekends, I enjoyed skiing, sailing and coaching youth soccer. Over the years in the plant, I knew people who found themselves caught up in the legal system, for whatever reason, and they shared their feelings of frustration and helplessness with me. This was such a foreign place for them to be, and they felt vulnerable and uncertain. There were times when I wanted to do more than just listen and provide support. When the plant reorganized, I realized this was an opportunity to do more. I sold my sailboat, and entered law school. In 1982, I graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law and entered law practice in Columbia. While in Columbia, I met Representative John Talley from Cherokee County, and he invited me to join his law practice there. This was in 1983, and we have called the upstate home since then.
During my more than 30 years in practice, I have practiced in a small general practice firm, in addition to spending some time prosecuting criminal cases, and working for Clemson University in the athletics department in NCAA compliance. These experiences have given me a strong sense of community, which drives me to never forget the importance of one person, in one situation, and the impact that one person can make. My staff believes in the importance of every client, and we realize this importance with individual attention. Being in a legal situation of any kind can be a frustrating experience, and it certainly is foreign to most people. I hope you allow me and my staff to work with you, to fight for you, and to help you navigate the waters of the legal system, to gain you the best result the law will allow. Let our 30+ years of experience work for you!
